This special edition from celebrated Belgian photographer Jan Kempenaers further prefaces his gradual shift from visual language of the picturesque, articulated in his previous books for Roma Publications: Spomenik, The Picturesque and Dun Briste, Downpatrick Head. Shot on a handheld, medium format camera during a road trip through California, I'm Not Tailgating, I'm Drafting is a significant and poetic step for Kempenaers. This limited edition concertina – which folds out into a single sheet and features a signed, hand-numbered C-Type print – captures the fragments, formal and textural details that marked Kempenaers travels and hints towards his growing interest in abstraction. A genuine collectors edition, this stunning piece of publishing arrives courtesy of Roma (Amsterdam) and Idea Books (Amsterdam).
32 pages, 17 x 23 cm, paperback, Roma Publications (Amsterdam).
